West Bend Sunrise Rotary Club is proud to introduce our newest member Lisa Gilmore from Interfaith Caregivers of Washington County. Welcome to the club, Lisa!
Our club’s own Mary Beth Seiser was honored at the Foundation dinner for achieving Rotary Triple Crown status for being a Major Donor, a member of the Bequest Society and a member of the Paul Harris Society. Mary Beth, your generosity and dedication are an inspiration to all of us. Congratulations!
 
 
The West Bend Sunrise Rotary Club recently gave Vicki Lehnerz, owner of Skinny Vic’s Diner & Coffee Stop, a Paul Harris Fellow Award.
The award, named after Rotary founder Paul Harris, is given to those who donate, or have donations given in their name, a collective $1,000 to the Rotary Foundation. Rotary’s motto is “Service Above Self,” and Vicki exemplifies that in how she operates her restaurant, and through her contributions to the community.
Members of the West Bend Sunrise Rotary felt that Vicki was deserving of this recognition because she has offered fundraising programs to non-profits through her restaurant, supported local causes such as chili suppers at churches and the Kiwanis Duck Derby at Regner Park, and because she provides a place for the West Bend Sunrise Rotary club to meet each Tuesday morning.
 
Congratulations Vicki!
 
This past Tuesday October 3rd, we inducted Joan Rudnitzki into the West Bend Sunrise Rotary Club. We are so happy to have you Joan!
Pictured alongside Joan is her membership sponsor, Gary Britton, and current West Bend Sunrise Rotary President Jon Corbett.

Recently, Sunrise Rotary welcomed our newest members Jeff Eagen and Dr. Elliot Shambeau. Jeff is the Kettle Country District Executive for the Boy Scouts of America, and Dr. Elliot Shambeau recently joined the Gentle Dental Emporium as their newest dentist. Glad to have you join our club and do good in our community!
